Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis has released Typinator 6.0, a major update to its text expansion tool with over 50 new features and improvements. The biggest addition is the capability to create expansions based on regular expressions for replacements based on flexible patterns, which includes correction of “DOuble CAps” instances, inline calculations, automatic capitalization at the beginning of sentences, and predefined “Date Steps” for generating dates that can increment or decrement by day or week. The release also adds support for HTML-formatted expansions for email clients that support HTML mail, built-in functions for string processing in expansions (such as case conversions, extraction of fragments, etc.), new import file types for replacing the contents of existing sets, and improved relevance ranking for suggestions. Typinator 6.0 gets a redesigned user interface with a new window layout, plus it enables you to resize the expansion area, shortens the menu with a clearer structure, and displays sets and rules side by side to make it easier to move rules.

Typinator 6.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard or later, but you need to be running 10.7 Lion or later in order to use regular expressions. It’s also fully compatible with 10.9 Mavericks. If you purchased a license for Typinator 5 on or after 1 October 2013, you can upgrade to version 6.0 for free. For purchases made before that date, you can upgrade to Typinator 6.0 for €12.99 (single license). (€24.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, 7.2 MB, release notes)
